Where is the driveplate access cover located? I'm trying to take my crankshaft pulley off. Thanks!

That's the plastic shield that allows you to see the torque converter. Just 2 plastic screws hold it in. Goes between engine and trans near edge of oil pan.

Okay....Found it. Another question. Still trying to get the pulley off and it wont budge. Ive stuck an allen wrench in the gears around the torque converter to stop it from moving and it doesnt move but when i turn the pulley with a wrench, it moves the crankshaft. How can i make it so it doesnt move at all?

If it is DOHC then it left handed thread.

There's some locking device you can buy from Ford that you bolt in place of the shield. This apparently will lock the engine in place so you can reverse thread out the crankshaft pulley.

I'm well aware that is left hand threaded. I've done one before but this one just will not come off.
